    Hate that we have to play the Thunder on a back to back after stupid scheduling like this. Should be an easy win here, but the Thunder the next day will be tough.

    73-11

    Dwight vs. Vucevic!

    Rockets better be careful about this game.

    I like the extra 2 games at the end you gave us.

    Currently on a 4 game win streak, the Houston Rockets led by Jeremey Lin look to extend the win streak to 5. Rockets with the W.

    Winning against OKC the following day will be almost meaningless if we lose to a team we are supposed to beat. Just trounce them.

    Feed Dmo in the post. Don't force it to Dwight against Vucevic. Beard do Beard things and we get the easy W

    that is after they win the first 2 home games of the playoffs and then the team all have acl tears at the same exact moment. tragic but very humorous ;)

    This is going to be a tougher game than people think. Don't think it will be double digits.

    Rockets W

    We've done a good job of taking care of business against bad teams this season

    It evens out over the course of the season. Our next opponent after OKC is the Warriors. They play OKC the night before they come to town, plus they play tonight and tomorrow. Which means it'll be their 4th game in 5 nights when they take on the Rockets.

    As for the Magic, another game the Rockets should win handily. But keep in mind this Orlando team just went into Chicago last night and defeated the Bulls. The same Bulls that beat us a week ago. So just like Utah the other day, don't take this one lightly.

    No Tobias Harris, no Evan Fournier -- but this still won't be an easy game. In a perfect world, Dwight/DMo can contain Vucevic & we put them away by Q4... but the Magic are a better team than their record indicates, IMO. They're one of my League Pass faves, and it seems like they have more close games than almost any other team in the league. They might lose more than they win, but they hardly ever go quietly.
